The past year has been terrible for a lot of people. The economic recession affected almost every country around the globe. It didn’t matter where you were or what your designation was or how big a paycheck you received at the end of each month, nothing was certain. All of a sudden, everyone from vice presidents of corporate giants to clerks at small and medium businesses, be it retail houses or banks; noone was sure if they would still be employed at the end of the day.
Being a Pinay myself I know how tough it was for people who have left the Philippines to earn their bread and butter on foreign shores. I know of people who took up as many as three jobs to cope with the financial strain, getting barely any time to sleep. It was a tough time but Pinays are survivors and hopefully most of us have risen out of our money troubles. However, a lot of folks found out that the recovering economy did not really spell the end of their financial crunch. Despite having worked so hard to make ends meet, they were neck deep in debts because of the loans they had to take loans to keep things moving during the economic downturn. Even normal, everyday expenses such as rent and sending money back home to support families became difficult so people ended up taking loans.
Although they found jobs after things started getting back to normal, repaying the loans proved to be a tough task. Some are still trying to find a way to repay their debts. There is a good option in hiring a debt consolidation service though. Such companies negotiate with your creditors on your behalf and guide you on how to repay your debts in a well-planned manner. It’s a good way to be debt free easier and fast!
